At Greenleas we follow the Penpals Handwriting Scheme. From Year 2 the children begin to learn how to join their handwriting and are encouraged throughout all of their writing to start to join wherever possible. The children learn both horizontal and diagonal joins and also learn about which letters we do not join, for example we do not join any descenders.
Please find below some examples of unjoined handwriting, that your child learnt in Year 1, and some examples of joined handwriting that your child will be learning in Year 2. We have also uploaded the weekly handwriting homework sheet that your child has brought home in their homework folder. Please ask if you have any questions about handwriting.
Year 2 Handwriting Homework is sent home every Friday in the yellow Homework folder. Homework is due back to School the following Wednesday.
